thumbnail Hello,

The Hoops defender was on form for his side as they triumphed over Sligo Rovers, while David McMillan impressed for Dundalk as they came from behind to defeat Bohemians

Dundalk extended their lead at the top of the table to six points as they came from behind to beat Bohemians 3-2. Substitute David McMillan scored twice after coming off the bench, adding to Andy Boyle's opener to give the Lilywhites all three points.

Title challengers Cork City were held to a 2-2 draw by Athlone Town, with Darren Dennehy on target for the Leesiders. Athlone were good value for their draw, with John Mulroy netting as they moved a point closer to safety.

Shamrock Rovers kept pressure on third-place St Patrick's Athletic with a narrow win over Sligo Rovers. Simon Madden scored the only goal of the game, and was a constant threat out wide for the Hoops.

St Pat's also recorded a 1-0 win, taking all three points from their visit to the Brandywell. Keith Fahey impressed in midfield for the Saints, and delivered the final ball for Aaron Greene's goal against a determined Derry City side. Peter Hutton's men were kept at bay by a fine performance in goal by Brendan Clarke.

Drogheda United's good start under new manager Damien Richardson continued as they defeated Limerick 3-0 at Thomond Park. Gavan Holohan got his name on the scoresheet for the second week running, while Cathal Brady scored his fourth league goal of the season in a big win for Drogs.

Ismahil Akinade kick-started Bray Wanderers' win over UCD with an early goal. The Seagulls ran out 2-0 winners, helping them to a crucial win over their relegation rivals.
